In light of the fact even more animals are being killed, the SPCA and Posurepro are hoping a reward will help move the investigation forward and are offering $2,000 “to anyone providing information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person responsible for these heinous acts of cruelty.”

“If they’ve seen anything in relation to people making threats or potentially doing something that can harm a cat, contact our inspection department,” said Alanna Devine, the SPCA’s Director of Animal Advocacy.

The SPCA’s investigative department can be reached by email or by phone at 514-735-2711, ext. 2230. All tips are treated confidentially.

The organization has also suggested that until the case is solved, Laval residents should keep their pets safe by keeping them indoors.
